to romney but in semi quasi defense of romney one mistake that obama made in the 2008 campaign is he said he was going to change the tone in washington. and every president says that. but the president does vice president the power to change the tone in washington. it takes two to consummate this tango, and obama tried. obama tried in many ways and at many different times as you know, the stimulus was more than one-third tax cuts he adopted a republican ideas for his health care reform. he went to republicans many times and said what will it take to get you to compromise with me on this bill and other bills, and he got no votes at all. so the republican's position is disrupt, be destructive, watch things fall apart, and then point their finger at him. >> jennifer: i'm curious what you think -- i have this theory that -- again, i could be all wet, but in the theme of hurricane sandy that bloomberg and chris christie who both need now significant investments to shore up their infrastructure to make sure these rolling storms which this won't be the last one since climate ch
charm the administration made other promises to firms as well. john thune said the defense contractors are given assurances by president obama the legal bills will be covered if they are sued for violating the warn act. amazing economic numbers you won't hear in the mainstream media. in the grapevine. up next, c.i.a. version of what happened in benghazi on september 11.

of defense we'll reimburse you for that. >> cenk: michael, as you i hear you say that, that has to be the most obvious thing in the world. i can't imagine any of administration disagreeing except it turns out you guys did under the bush administration. does that go to show that nobody was in charge? there was wide disarray here. how can you have rumsfeld saying no or even having a debate for six hours on whether to send helicopters during hurricane katrina? isn't that very damming of how george bush ran that white house? >> it is damming as i have said, since the day i left. actually, since before then. if you went back and you found there is a march 2003 memo from me to tom ridge. gave the same memo later to michael chertoff that said if you keep fema this position and you keep this command structure that currently exists, fema will fall. it is exactly what we did. you now have this huge bureaucracy that fema is a part of. now, that said, congress has tried to correct it. i think congress learned from katrina t
defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are and the defense strategy, i also remind everyone that we are also going to be downsizing during this time. the army, who at the beginning of calendar year 2012 was 570,000, will go down to 490,000 in the active component by the end of 2017. we have significant deployed commitments. we are downsizing our army, and we are now looking to the future. one of the main thing is we have to do is ensure we have the right mix. i always talk about my three rio stats that the secretary of army and i pay a lot of attention to. end strength, modernization, and readiness. because in general terms those are the drivers of our budget. we have to keep those in balance. we want to learn from the lessons of past draw downs. some of the lessons is you can't get out of balance. because if you get out of balance you start to have an unready army. which leads to a hobbled army. we talk about task force smith and its impact and unpreparedness as was asked to go into korea post-world war ii. we don't want that to happen again
and foremost, our military readiness. but for an area that relies heavily on the defense industry, it would be devastating. >> what were the dates from key come house, senate and governor's races online any time and throughout the day saturday on c-span, starting at 10:00 a.m. eastern. >> just a few minutes ago, i called by president bush and congratulated him on his victory. and i know i speak for all of you and for all of the american people when i say, he will be our president and we will work with them. this nation faces major challenges ahead and we must work together. >> i have just received a telephone call from gov. dukakis. [applause] and i want you to know, it was most gracious. his call was personal. it was genuinely friendly. and it was and the great tradition of american politics. [applause] >> of this weekend on c-span 3 and american history tv, 20 years of presidential victory and concession speeches, but sunday at 7:00 p.m. eastern and pacific. >> "washington journal" continues. host: we have been highlighting key battleground states as part of a series and the countdown to
at the defense of our country. but it is not just the military. there's some things -- look at our transportation system that government does better, where the role of government is necessary to bring all of us together because what is a government? the government is just us working together to solve problems and to create a better america. so this anti-government rhetoric from paul ryan, from the tea party, hating government and from mitt romney, that's what he's all about. hurricane sandy proves that is dangerous. not just wrong. dangerous. dangerous for america. think of hurricane sandy. speaking of, we'll talk to ray stojic from the weather channel next on the "full court press." >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." live on your radio and current tv. >>only on current tv. dose of politics from a fresh perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your high
of the year that will hurt military readiness. but for the defense industry it would be devastating. >> watch more debates online nit and throughout the day saturday on c-span starting at 10:00 a.m. eastern. now several perspectives on the presidential campaign in the battleground state of ohio. from "washington journal." this is an hour and twenty-five minutes. key battleground states as part of a series and the countdown to campaign 2012. today we will wrap up their series by putting a spotlight on ohio. to do that, we are joined by mark naymik, a political reporter with the "cleveland plain dealer." ohio has 18 crucial electoral votes. september unemployment rate of 7%. and a state that president obama won by a little more than four points in 2008. go beyond the numbers and explain why ohio has been described as the ultimate battleground state. guest: great question. ohio doesn't need any more spotlight. the candidates themselves and their running mates have been in ohio about 80 plus times by the time this weekend is over. that is a lot of activity. and the reason they are here, ohio is t

at it differently. and, you know, in a weird defense of mitt romney, in a weird defense of mitt romney, he was answering a deficit question there. he wasn't thinking about fema at all. >> right. in fact, he tried to dodge it a little bit. >> i think that's a really crucial because to me when i think about fema and disasters i'm absolutely confronted by these two americas, the katrina/fema reaction and the sandy/fema reaction and the reality is to argue there hasn't been a significant political response to the significance of fema by different governments and it's not split down party lines. it's simply not true. there was a really great article in "mother jones" that took you through -- >> the development of fema competence. >> right. and who had headed fema and the way that presidents had appointed those fema heads were directly related to how they perceived their significance. so, for example, george bush actually allocated michael brown who was the former -- i just had to read this out, because i was just blown away. michael brown who was the former commissioner of judges and stewards f
the administration officials, from fema to homeland security to the department of defense. we talk with all the governors in the affected states as well as an awful lot of the mayors. i can tell you confidently that the federal government, state government, local government, they are doing everything in their power to coordinate relief as rapidly as we can so many people who have been devastated by this storm. [applause] as tragic as it is, my mom, god rest her soul, she said, joe, out of something bad, something good will come if you look hard enough. my state of delaware was hit. it is a low-lying state. the hurricane went on shore about 30 miles from rehoboth to, in new jersey. my state, where my in-laws used to live, where my brothers and sisters live, they were hit pretty badly. i have a sister in law and family who live in ocean city, new jersey. you saw how badly they were hit. it is kind of amazing -- it is kind of amazing. a call yesterday with all the governors and mayors, it warmed my heart. you had the governor of delaware, the governor of connecticut, the governor of pennsylvan
special flavor, it is probably defense. it depends on defense to a greater degree than any other state except for alaska's. there is a special flavor on defense, a special flavor on special spending. the hampton roads off of virginia beach and the localities. >> what are the demographics of the state of virginia? >> as with most population states, there are many states in 1 parity have a northern virginia, which is about one- third of the population, it produces 30% of the votes of some more. that population is national and international in scope. it is the highest income region. it has the people with the highest education levels in the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if they go down to hampton roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is both white-collar and blue-collar, also has a large african-american population. and it also has a relatively low nativity rate, that is people not necessarily born in virginia, due to the influence of the navy. the navy brings lots of people in from across the nation and across the world. the richmond area is an u
-half defense, one-half not. whatever. it becomes like part of the ecosystem in a strange way. the president was saying of course it's not going to happen. no one thought it would happen. you know, we would force ourselves to come wac to the table. it's strange to think it's what our elected officials have to do. >> this is what i want. if you want to summarize the budget control act, basically republicans want a scale of spending cuts. half of it's defense. there's no cuts really to health care. a little to medicare. that's it. the content of the cut preserve democratic priorities. the scale is where hens want, by and large. >> there are no tax increases. that was the thing that was the do or die thing to republicans and always will be forever and ever and ever. >> right. those are things republicans want. they conceded on the content of the the cuts. >> they did start saying the day after -- >> that we should not make the cuts. >> sure. i just want to say, my point is, i think we are optimistic. they have an incentive to compromise. if democrat say look, we are stuff with this framework. t
guard and the department of defense all positioned, if the public is not following instructions, that makes it more dangerous for people and it means that we could have fatalities that could have been avoided. >> as the winds start building this afternoon, it gets more and more dangerous to go outside and so you sort of caught between a rock and hard place. you should have left but it's getting to be too late to leave. if you really experience an emergency, 911. we will send our first responders in, although we'd love very much not to have to put their lives at risk and you can control that by getting out now. >> i'm very, very concerned and alarmed by those that are not following the mandatory evacuation instructions. they are putting themselves in harm's way and they are certainly putting first responders in harm's way. i think what you just witnessed in suffolk county with people refusing to leave fire island and having to go back and rescue them at this point, fortunately only equipment was lost, but that easily could have been a first responder injured or harmed and that wo
still without electricity and the department of defense is helping to air lift utility crews into affected areas to get the lights back on. in new york, officials have restored power to more than 375,000 homes and businesses. people cheered when the lights came back on, gasoline is still tough to come by with lines stretching several miles in some locations across new york and new jersey today. some locations are still without electricity. so the gas cannot be pumped. officials have reopened the port of new york allowing more supplies in including fuel tankers brinking more than 200 million barrels of fuel to expedite that process. new york governor andrew cuomo temporarily waiving registration requirements for fuel distributors and transporters. after a day of increasing controversi controversy of the new york city marathon, michael bloomberg announced it has been canceled. quote, we would not want a cloud to hang over the race or its participants, and so we have decided to cancel it. we cannot allow a controversy over an athletic event, even one as meaningful as this, to di
,000 defense jobs which in virginia are a key thing, not just for our national security, but a key thing for our economy. >> let's stick to taxes. let's stick to taxes here because one of the center pieces of romney's economic plan is the tax rate change, including for the wealthier, the job creators, but a recent report from the non-partisan congressional research service found no correlation between the cuts in the top tax rates and economic growth. congressional republicans railed against this report, as you're aware and under pressure the crs actually with drew it. now on the surface that sounds pretty bad so i want to give you a chance to defend the party. why did they basically kill this report? >> listen, i'm not actually familiar with that report, but i know the reports that have said that the president's tax increases will cost us 700,000 -- >> let me -- this is a report -- this is a report from a non-partisan group saying that the -- >> which they with drew. mish mcconnell's office said they had concerns -- they had concerns about methodology, that's coming from mitch mcconnell
, on national defense, and so, this poll sounds ectly that. and now that they've been spending 61,000, the amount they've spent is up 32 percent from 2008. basically say, here you go. it's not a way to provide incentives for people to get out and get jobs. on the contrary to provide incentives to get on the couch. >> it's seductive to give people the things, the problem in greece and now the problem with this administration, but charles, i think that was the calculus from the beginning, get more people beginning to receive a check and you saw this a couple of months ago, the wall street journal said half and half of people are getting a check from the government. they want people reliant. >> you know that phrase, don't bite the hand that feeds you, this is apropos. charles: and you hate to say it, and this is that 47% comment, i think this is what mitt romney was really trying to talk about at that particular point. a month ago, get a check in the mailbox might be unlikely to change that vote. thanks, guys. want to get to sandy quick and check with anna kooiman, on long island, ho

as 10 to 12 feet it looks like. this dune about 30 yards wide is the last line of defense between the ocean and the town of point pleasant beach, which is this way in front of me. there's a lot of flooding in that town already. it's for the most part evacuated because there are lakes and rivers and an inlet in the sea. all those waters are also rising, and the threat is that the ocean can connect with those waters to essentially obliterate much of the town. it's the same story for many communities up and down the jersey shore in the path of the stor storm. i gather we're the target and bull's eye at in the point. we're really feeling it here. the rain is going sideways. it's wind yichy. the gusts were up to 30 miles per hour. i'm turning this way because there's sand flying off the dune. i have to keep my back down to it to protect my face. it feels like sleet. the town is evacuated, and we've been out and about to see what's going on. police have been going through the neighborhoods trying to make sure that people have evacuated. we've heard reports of two occasions where they ha
like to wish it's 2008. the reality is they are forced to play some defense in more states that they once believed were safer for the president. the obama campaign is taking the threat seriously enough that they sent president clinton to minnesota tuesday. they're buying airtime in all three states that romney would like to make xcompetitive. but the president's campaign, they called romney's move desperate. in a video released yesterday, the race was framed to his volunteers this way. >> we are ahead or tied in every single battleground state. that means mitt romney has to win not only the tossups but a couple states where we have a clear lead to have any chance of winning the presidency. >> messina ran through the battleground states but explicitly did not mention michigan or minnesota. he says, quote, they are throwing money at states where they never built an organization and have been losing for two years. the romney campaign and its allies' decision to go up with advertising in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota is a decision made out of weakness not strength. well
defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back. finally, let me finish with the best way to fight people who play racial politics -- get out there and vote. this is "hardball," the place for politics. jaw drop? campbell's has 24 new soups that will mak
and defense and crime and things like that. but that's been declining over time. in fact, you unpack the environment section of what people care about, climate tends to rank virtually dead last. people are more concerned with their local environment: air pollution, water pollution, things like that. this is why we've seen these new poll-tested terms like "carbon pollution." c.o.-2 is the thing i'm exiling at you right now, we breathe out carbon dioxide. so we're seeing new terms called green energy instead of climate change because polls show people are skeptical and dubious of those motivations. they believe it's been overblown and it turns people off. >> suarez: joseph romm, why haven't we heard more about this topic during the national campaign? >> well, of course, mitt romney gets money from fossil fuel interests that's one reason he even opposes a clean energy tax credit for wind. obama, i think, is just misreading the polls entirely. the latest polling shows that -- i think ken is right. when global warming becomes local that the public becomes concerned about it. that's why th
, dwellings for civilians. >> warner: jeffrey white, a defense fellow at the washington institute for near east policy, says the syrian government is waging a deliberate "scorched earth" strategy. >> it's trying to get at f.s.a. units that are embedded inside the population. where people are, the f.s.a. tends to be. so it is trying to strike at the f.s.a., cause some attrition on them. but it's also trying to punish the people, the civilians, for supporting the f.s.a. the relationship between the f.s.a. units and the people is critical to the success of the rebellion >> warner: why don't the regime forces just go into these areas and take them and hold them? >> it basically can't do that any longer. six months ago, they could go anywhere in the country, effectively, they wanted with armor mechanized forces backed up by artillery, and simply push the f.s.a. out of the area and retake the area and reestablish a presence. the opposition is strong enough now that the regime's ground forces, to go into those areas, is a punishing affair for the regime. >> warner: throughout the conflict, syrian
to china seemed to be a very defensive move with a week before the election. >> it was governor strickland who called it a desperate ad. we know the importance of ohio and look at the maps. we've talked about it at length as well as the entire team of what governor romney needs here. the reality on the ground is he's not been able to in the polling pass president obama in ohio. so you've got this ad that even -- or words that even chrysler says are misleading and inaccurate. if it is not desperation, i got to want to put words in your mo mouth. you have to wonder what it is. this is not a ad where you say maybe it is or may it's not. chrysler says it's not true, the assertion comes from governor romney got started last thursday. >> it's a position of weakness for the romney campaign going out with this ad. tamron, you are right that chrysler now having to weigh in and saying, look, the insinuation in this ad that jobs are shipped overseas to china is incorrect. for chrysler to weigh in ends up hurting probably the romney campaign. i will go into the truth of all. this original romney ad is
